If nobody else is going to reference him, I'll do it....

Read the Preface to Mindstorms by Seymour Papert.


This was one of the earliest and best pioneers thinking about how  
computers and technology could be used in education.

His philosophy also was about teaching problem solving rather than  
programming per se.  Lovely stuff, but it's been left on the side of  
the road for some reason.
